How Botox Works

Botox is a  neurotoxin/ neuroprotein that effectively paralyzes facial muscles and is commonly used in cosmetic procedures to visibly reduce signs of aging.

How Much Does Botox Cost?

  • Brow Lift: $450-$600
  • Neck Lift: $850-$950
  • Chin Botox: $250-$350
  • Crows Feet Botox: $160-$350
  • TMJ Botox: $ 300-500
  • Barbie Botox: around $1000

The cost of specific treatments can vary significantly because each patient has unique muscle movements, muscle strength, and age. Women under 35 usually have strong muscles and require forehead Botox, brow lift Botox, and crow's feet Botox. Their platysma and neck are usually not affected by hypertone. As they age, jowls may appear due to muscle hyper tone. The nose may seem wider, the nostrils flare, and the chin moves during talking. All these patterns require full-face Botox treatment, including chin Botox and jawline Botox, known as Nefertiti lift. Younger people typically require more units of Botox because their muscles are more vigorous and need more units to relax. As people age, they generally require fewer units of Botox to relax their muscles, but more muscles may need to be treated to achieve a younger-looking appearance. Therefore, the price range can be anywhere from a few hundred dollars to a thousand.

Two factors affect the cost of Botox injectables, including the product used. Some neurotoxin-based products, such as Xeomin, require more units to relax muscles compared to Botox, which causes the price to vary in Toronto. The fee charged by the injector influences the cost of your treatment. If you opt for a highly skilled and in-demand injector, you may have to pay more for the treatment. It is especially important when receiving injectable dermal fillers and Botox, as the final result depends heavily on the injector's expertise and knowledge.

 

How Many Units Are Used Per Treatment?

The amount of Botox units required for a particular treatment may vary depending on the specific choice made. For frown lines, approximately 20 units may be necessary, while forehead Botox might require 6 to 20 units for women and could be doubled for men. Full Face Botox is based on 70-90 units. The Nefertiti lift- Chin Botox requires around 50 units. Crow's feet Botox requires 20-30 units for young people and about 16 for menopausal women. TMJ Botox relaxes the jaw when 25 units are injected on each side.

Cost of Most Common Filler Treatments

  • Tear- Trough filler: Juvederm Volbella or Juvederm Volift with cannula technique is $800-1000 in Toronto. Half of the dermal filler syringe is usually injected on each side.
  • Jawline Filler costs $850-1050 per syringe. On average, it takes 3-4 syringes to achieve a perfect jawline. In most cases, double chin treatment is necessary before receiving filler injections to reduce the amount of fat under the jaw and any swelling. As a result, you may require less dermal filler after undergoing double chin treatment.
  •  Chin Filler costs $850-1050 per syringe. Two Juvederm Volux are usually enough to get the result. The preferred method of injection is a cannula.

When comparing a cannula versus a needle injection technique, it is essential to note that cannulas have a unique advantage. These specialized instruments are characterized by a blunt tip, allowing us to administer fillers with high precision. This technique enhances the filler's longevity and results in a more aesthetically pleasing outcome. Patients will appreciate how their natural appearance is maintained while still achieving the desired results. Aside from the cosmetic benefits, the cannula injection technique also minimizes the likelihood of bruising. Patients can leave our office without visible marks, confident they can return to their daily activities without explaining any bruises. Overall, using cannulas is an advanced technique we proudly offer our patients.

Botox and dermal fillers are popular treatments for people who want to improve their appearance. Botox relaxes muscles under the skin to reduce wrinkles and lines. The most common Botox treatments are Botox brow lift, crow's feet Botox, and chin Botox. Facial fillers are also famous for people who want to look younger, especially when they have lost volume or need symmetry or proportion correction. MedVSpa uses safe and long-lasting hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm Voluma. If any problems occur, the filler can be dissolved with hyaluronidase.

How Long Do Botox Results Last?

Botox typically lasts from three to six months, while facial fillers can provide results for 18 months to two years. The longest-lasting dermal filler on the market is Juvederm Volux, known as a chin filler or chin implant.

The Final Takeaway

The cost of Botox or dermal filler injections varies based on the quantity of product used, the esthetic injector's experience and qualifications, and the business's location. Although it may be possible to find injections at an affordable price, it is essential to maintain quality - after all, we are talking about your face!
